What You Get
Advance 5053 which includes the full-size pattern pieces and instructions for making this dress with contrast dickey and short puff sleeves, or long-sleeve blouse and jumper. Bodice has extended shoulder and waist darts. The flared skirt has pleats at center front and back. Use the zoom feature for a closer look. Let me know if you’d like to see the envelope back. This is sized for women who wear vintage Misses’ 14 (32″ bust, 35″ hip). No date found but I would date this to the late 1940s or early 1950s.
The envelope is in excellent condition for age with short top edge tear on back. The pattern and instruction sheets are in original factory fold. No personal names or markings noted. From clean, smoke-free home.
Generally sent the same day you pay. Unless you request otherwise, I will back this with one piece of box cardboard (to help prevent the Post Office from bending it), wrap it in plastic wrap (to help protect the item from moisture or torn packaging), then send inside a manila envelope when sent via First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation. This is the cheapest postage option that includes both item protection and tracking. See the shipping page to give you an estimate on the cost of a First Class 1 package. I am delighted to combine postage and insurance costs if you purchase more than one item. The second item may travel for free or just a few cents more — so it’s worth taking a look at my other items before you complete your order.

>> I store my patterns in a clear zip-top bag to help protect them from additional tearing during handling and storage. If you want this to ship inside one, I can do that for another 10 cents.
